JAZZIS by Michel Freidenson is a unique combination of traditional jazz, bebop, cool jazz, and fusion with sounds of electronic music as acid jazz, drum'n'bass, and trance. With the participation of Marcio Montarroyos ("Brooklin Beat" and "Café Noir"), Sylvio Mazzuca, and Edson X, Jazzis creates tracks where the piano reigns supreme.
Brazilian composer, pianist, arranger and producer Michel Freidenson makes full use of his extensive experience and multifaceted musicality with the long awaited NOTAS NO AR, a combination of original compositions and Brazilian and international standards highlighting the piano. Special guests include Hermeto Pascoal, Raul de Souza and the exceptional Thijs Van Leer (of the Dutch progressive rock group, Focus). Well-produced and well performed, this genuine swing journey of the finest contemporary jazz, samba and bossa-nova tunes is polished and pleasurable to listen to.
ATMOSPHERES by Michael Dulin
"A great blend of classical and soft jazz with New Age leanings... As a composer, Laurie combines sounds into tapestries and as a musician; she displays unfailing attention to detail while giving full expression to her emotions." ~ Backroads Music
